Lead Replacement Grant Scheme for Homeowners
The Department of the Environment Community & Local Government have announced a grant scheme that is available to homeowners to assist with the cost of replacing lead pipes and fittings containing lead in their property.
If you want to test your water for lead:
• You should use a laboratory with accreditation (approval) for testing for lead in drinking water. Using an accredited laboratory means you have independent assurance that the test is carried out properly.
• You should take a sample before and after water has been flushed through the pipe for 3 minutes.
The Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB) assesses and certifies laboratories. It lists all accredited laboratories on its website and you can check with it for suitable laboratories in your area. It is a good idea to ring a few laboratories as prices can vary. The website address is: http://www.inab.ie/Directory-of-Accredited-Bodies/Laboratory-Accreditation/Testing/
